When the system is running go into System Properties, Advanced Tab, Click the Settings button in Startup and Recovery, and uncheck Automatically restart.

It sounds like the system is crashing on shutdown and issues the Auto restart command because if this.

With that option unchecked you will see the crash report.

Hope that helps.

Hi. Start menu -> I can only see shut down, or sleep, depending on how it's configured, but to access other power options I have to click on the small white arrow to the right of the power button. So if the default setting of the big button is shutdown then it's a hassle to choose sleep because...
